Welcome to the Monona County Recorder’s Office. The Recorder’s Office was created by the First Legislative Assembly of Iowa in 1839 and is the first point of service for all official real estate documents. After real estate documents are recorded they are then transferred to the office of the Auditor, Treasurer and Assessor. Our office contains valuable information concerning homes, family, businesses and recreation.   

The Recorder’s Office is also responsible for the County’s vital records i.e. issuing Marriage Licenses as well as Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates.

This office also serves as a licensing agent for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and issues fishing and hunting licenses as well as registering and titling boats, off road vehicles and snowmobiles.

The Monona County Recorder's Office DOES NOT:

  • Provide legal services
  • Prepare legal documents
